by the previous selection
panel led by Clive Lloyd. You
did not play any ODI cricket for
West Indies between October
2014 and June 2016. Were you
worried your career was over
considering the selection panel
back then had stated youngsters
were being groomed for the fu-
I was worried. The selectors
had already said they were
going beyond Bravo and Pol-
lard. They are building for 2019
World Cup, which is next year.
Still, two years later I was in-
cluded for the  tri-series
against Australia and South
Africa, where I did well. A few
months later, in October, we
had a bad tour against Pakistan
in the UAE. We got beaten 3 0 in
the T20 series. We got [beaten]
3 0 in the ODI series, too. Phil
Simmons had been ired as the
coach on the eve of that tour.
We were disastrous. Everyone
was unsure about what was
going on. All the shots were
being called from the [CWI]
headquarters [in Antigua]. I am
not sure who was exactly calling
What is your relationship
with CWI president Dave Cam-
The last I spoke to him was just
exchanging pleasantries during
the T20 against India in Jamaica.
No conversation, just cordial.
Talking to a Caribbean televi-
sion network last week, Cameron
stated that the CWI was very "dis-
appointed" that some of the play-
ers had opted not to play in the
quali iers. He indicated some of
those players might not play for
West Indies again. Does that affect
you since it is the CWI president
Of course it affects me. It af-
fects you as a cricketer, it affects
you as a human being. And it not
only affects you, it will also affect
a lot of cricketers coming forward
that the president of the board is
calling those sorts of shots. At the
end of the day, there is a selec-
tion panel that picks and drops a
player. There is a cricket director.
There is a chief executive of icer.
Is the president a selector? Every
time we have these sorts of issues
a player's career gets ended. If
you oppose, or you challenge, you
have to get out.
How can you come out and say that
you had discussions with us players?
How can the chairman of selectors say
we have prioritised PSL? It seems to
them that is the case, but because of
the way they communicate, it is easy
to tarnish the player's name. Are they
looking for a reason just in case things
don't go to plan [if West Indies fail to
qualify for the World Cup]?
After the England series last year,
West Indies coach Stuart Law said the
destiny of players is in their hands, that
if players are playing in the Super50
and go on to play in the T20 leagues, it
is ine with the board. Both players and
team would bene it. Is the situation as
clear as that?
There's no clarity and there's no
decision. Last year, we played Afghan-
istan at home. Some of us would have
had a full discussion with the CWI CEO
[ Johnny Graves]. Some things were
mentioned in terms of, 'we can be flex-
ible.' That we could play four or ive
games of Super50, and then we could
go play the T20 leagues, then come
back. None of that came to fruition.
Also, as per the CWI policy, if any
player leaves the Super 50, his team is
not allowed seek any replacement. T&T
already had [Sunil] Narine, who is cur-
rently playing for them in the Super50,
but will leave later in the tournament
for the PSL. So, say if I were to play
the Super50, T&T would have lost two
players without replacements. I talked
about this during my chat with T&T
How can that happen? That you can
play for your regional team but [they]
can't get a replacement? On one hand,
we are saying one thing, and on the
other hand, there's a policy in place [to
not get replacements]. It does not make
sense. It is not going hand in hand.
Who made that policy? Is that
going to be helpful for West Indies
Since 2010, players have been advo-
cating for an IPL window, knowing fully
well that the board can't pay the kind
of money the IPL is paying. Financially,
they cannot sustain [that kind of com-
petition]. So allow the players to go and
play the IPL, and then you have them
for the next ten months of the year. That
is what we have advocated since 2010,
but again they [CWI] played hardball,
while all the other nations were able
to ind a window for their players. Up
to 2018, we are now inding a window.
And now there are numerous leagues
around the world. So now players have
an opportunity to make a living. So it is
even more dif icult, whereas when we
actually wanted that one window, they
"Playing the leagues gives me the ire
inside to continue to perform and con-
tinue to show what I can do on a cricket
ield despite what other people think
Clearly you do still care for West
Indies cricket and you want to play
for West Indies?
In my heart, my priority at the start
of my career, was always to play for
West Indies. My priority was to play
Test cricket. I can say I was basically
robbed of that opportunity because I
was told that I was a limited-overs crick-
eter. That was one thing I had to get up
out of my sleep for. I continued playing
ODI and T20 cricket, despite having all
these leagues around the world.
Obviously my heart is still to play
for West Indies. But with these sort of
things happening, it is very, very dif-
icult to say, 'you know what, I'm just
gonna sit and wait'. If there's a clear
plan of going forward we sit, we plan for
the year, I am sure things can happen.
Recently the CWI offered three
types of contracts If you had been
offered the T20/ODI contract, do
you think the situation might have
Again, that is all up for discussion.
We can sit and we can try to speak hy-
pothetically, 'if this' and 'if that', but
will it happen? We will never know. We
spoke about white-ball contracts, not
one senior guy was offered a contract
to show some sort of commitment.
Commitment goes both ways, it is like
a marriage. So we cannot speak hypo-
thetically about if, if and if. Let it hap-
